Koning van Katoren

Koning van Katoren

De vrolijke oude koning van het goede land Katoren is overleden zonder een opvolger te hebben. Zes zure ministers regeren het land en beweren al 17 jaar dat ze een nieuwe koning zoeken, maar er gebeurt niets. Dan komt de 17-jarige Stach de ministers vragen wat je moet doen om koning te worden. De ministers geven Stach zeven bijna onuitvoerbare opdrachten, waarop al velen voor hem hun kracht beproefd hebben. Maar Stach is niet bang. Hij is slim en weet met gezond verstand alle opdrachten uit te voeren, waardoor hij Katoren weer tot een leefbaar land maakt.
